2. Dizziness and Fainting
When the body temperature begins to rise, a person who is suffering from heat stroke may begin to feel quite dizzy. Fainting is also common among heat stroke victims. The dizziness often occurs after the skin becomes inflamed and red. The body is pushing the blood towards the skin as a way to cool it down.
During this process the body is not sending as much blood to the brain. When the brain is not getting enough blood, a person may feel dizzy or even sick to their stomach. If your skin is red, you have a fever of 105 degrees fahrenheit or more, and you feel faint, seek medical attention immediately. Medical intervention is necessary in order to help get the body cooled down as quickly as possible. If you or someone you know experiences any signs of heat stroke, a visit to the doctor is in order.
